Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Not if you have some means of solar charging. Sounds like you can get a pretty minimal set-up that would suit your needs. Small solar panel, small inverter and/or a solar battery charger.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Guess I'm in the "can't take it with you" crowd. Had a house years ago and the maintenance was far more time consuming between the yard and house. Had the well-paying desk job too. Neither of which...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I think that's probably one of the main differences here... I never took the numbers barefoot listed in the initial post as gospel. Just simply as what he was going on for his intended time.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

And here we go again... back to the same old, tired issues people have had with this thread since January. To re-cap: nobody ever said once we untie the lines, that's it. If you can't voyage on...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

In the course of this thread we have pretty well fleshed out the idea that we all start from different places and have different means. The $500/mo has turned out to be a number to focus the...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

A depth sounder is a tool like any other... if you use it for what it's intended for and not as a crutch it enhances safety and navigation. Unless one has a fancy new forward-looking sonar set-up I'm...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I'll hazard a guess that it has to do with a reliance on technology. Both potential inaccuracy and watching the display and not looking at where you're going. Plus, one more electronic gadget to go...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Yeah, I hear what you are saying about full standing headroom and galley down one side with built-in dinette opposite. The former is the biggest reason I was considering looking for a different boat,...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Mine is a '69 Columbia 28. I can't say there has been much sailing done on it in the year that I have owned it. [emoji22] Definitely not my dream boat, but I had wanted a boat for over 8 years but...

OH! My mistake... I read the "Mexico" part but somehow missed the "Gulf of" part. Oops. I sincerely doubt I will come through or around from the Pacific just to make it to Mississippi for cheap...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I knew there was a reason I keep saying I am heading for Mexico this time next year... for a 28 - 34' boat I imagine they might accept a pack of cigarettes or something of equal value as payment for...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Thanks to you both. Up until quite recently I had been getting kind of anxious about getting out of here, and thinking that meant sort of a drive-by of places North but that South is where I want to...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Again... I don't really care to go too far off topic. That said, I am not against eating meat. I just think we could think a bit more about where it comes from, the associated costs (not solely $),...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

As with most things... the answer is just a google search away. I'm not vegetarian, by the way. Though the economics and effects of commercial meat/fish production are making me think about it....

Voyaging on $500 per month

FWIW, barefoot navigator (the OP) isn't out voyaging. It's precisely BECAUSE he's tied to a dock that his budget went up to $700/mo. And there is this pervasive myth that keeps popping up in this...

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

And the two arches with bench between sounds pretty cool. When the kid is old enough to take the helm you and the wife could go up and re-enact the iconic scene from Titanic "I'm the king of the...

Good to hear you got some wiring done! Steps are steps. And wow... I thought my wiring was a rat's nest. I would say the switch above the battery selector should be labeled "fire starter." ;) But it...

Thank you Chistian! There is a Pearson 36 I have had my eye on with the same set-up except the traveler is just forward of the wheel. I haven't been out on a boat with this configuration, but I...

Re: Wheel forward in cockpit

I have seen ones that are off center and definitely would not like that. The boat I saw is a Pearson 36 and the steering pedestal is in the middle and all the way forward. Seems reaching the traveler...
